U of L trustee, wife settle divorce without Charlie Strong testimony
The couple were supposed to be in court Friday, Feb. 25, where Tracy Blue’s attorney was going to ask to postpone depositions, including Strong’s.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A University of Louisville Trustee and his wife have settled a divorce, in which trustee Johnathan Blue had asked a judge to compel former U of L football coach Charlie Strong to testify.
Ann Oldfather, an attorney for Jonathan Blue, said the agreement came after several hours of mediation on Wednesday.
"Late last night, Jonathan and Tracy Blue signed a Marital Settlement Agreement, resolving all issues between them," Oldfather said in a statement. "We have consistently limited our filings and comments to the minimum in respect of Jonathan’s daughters. For that reason we will not comment further on what the proof would have revealed, except to say that Jonathan’s offers to Tracy Blue both prior to and after the recent media publicity were always fair and more than generous despite the pre-nuptial agreement between the parties."
The couple agreed to joint custody of their daughters.
Both sides were supposed to be in court Friday, Feb. 25, where Tracy Blue’s attorney was going to ask to postpone depositions, including Strong’s.
Last week, Blue had asked a judge to compel Strong – now the football coach at Texas – to produce his cell phones “for the purpose of downloading all text messages,” his phone bills from 2012 to present and all correspondence exchanged between Strong and Tracy Blue.
Strong is a “critical witness” to Tracy Blue’s “repeated behavior and activities that are inconsistent with being a role model and responsible caretaker” for the couple’s two teen daughters, according to a motion filed Feb. 19 in Oldham Family Court by Oldfather.
Oldfather had also requested “the Movado watch given” to Strong by Tracy Blue and all clothing and jewelry she gave to him.
The Blues had been married since April 1998, but an affidavit said Jonathan Blue moved out of their home in November.
